“I said two weeks before the Matchplay that I was going to win that and the World Championship so I have got to back my big mouth up and try to win it,” Wright is quoted in a story on the official PDC website. “I knew that I’d hit a lot of 180s [in the semi-final] but didn’t know it was 24. To be honest, I’m capable of hitting a lot more.
“The semi-final was the best game I’ve ever played in. Especially against somebody who is hitting back at me like Gary did. Michael has been smashing in the 180s as well so hopefully we can both keep doing that and break records in the final again. I think both of us are capable of blowing the record for 180s in the final out of the water.”
Fingers crossed for a thriller.
